Pennsylvania: Senate Candidate Fetterman(D) Taps Cop Killer Ally For Board of Pardons


Senate hopeful John Fetterman appointed a self-described “friend” of cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to serve on the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons, placing a supporter of the former Black Panther at an office Fetterman has called his “bully pulpit for criminal justice reform.”

Fetterman in January tapped Celeste Trusty to serve as secretary of the board, which Fetterman oversees as Pennsylvania lieutenant governor. Trusty, who served as Fetterman’s campaign political director, is a longtime prison reform activist who has called to “disarm the police.” She is also an avowed supporter of Abu-Jamal, who is serving a life sentence for the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Trusty referred to Abu-Jamal as a “friend” and “my buddy,” and has said she frequently corresponds with him. Abu-Jamal’s case has become a cause celebre for left-wing activists who want him released from prison for what they claim is a wrongful conviction.

Fetterman has put his Board of Pardons tenure front-and-center in his campaign against Republican Mehmet Oz, bragging that he “transformed” the lieutenant governor position by leading “the fight to free the wrongfully convicted and give second chances to deserving longtime inmates.” But Fetterman has also faced scrutiny for his board record. He voted to free numerous murderers, often over the wishes of families of victims. He was the only member of the five-person board to vote last year to pardon Wayne Covington, who was convicted of first-degree murder after killing a man to steal money to buy heroin. Covington struck a plea deal in his case in order to avoid the death penalty, the Washington Free Beacon reported. more

  1. In the most sickening way….we are being sucked into accepting liberalism as acceptable while refusing ANY common-sense humane practices.

    I phucking refuse ANY liberal ideology AND, I hate liberals.

  2. Anonymous, there is a rational case to be made against Oz, but projecting “batshit crazy” onto him in a campaign against Stroke Shrek Hoodie Lenin is not part of that case. Try again.

  3. The vile KKK-affiliated racist John Fetterman who is slyly pandering to one of the groups of people he absolutely hates. Typical Joe Biden action.

  4. Cleveburg here… Dennis the Mennace! The disingenuous, worthless little Federal Tit-Sucking Parasite boy mayor who didn’t know his ass from a hole in the hill who was always screaming about how Republicans are going to take your Social Security away!!
    I’m just surprised he didn’t choke on a dick somewhere along his miserable way thru life!

  5. Oh… and never forget the Dennis The Mennace proudly stood in the way of Obamacare until the Obamboozler came to Cleveland and gave the little boy an airplane ride and an ice-cream cone!

    Thats when Obamacare became reality!
    Thanks a lot you little Asshole!
